Hampstead NH Scarecrows 2015

Hampstead NH Scarecrows Hampstead NH Scarecrows 2015

Hampstead NH has been invaded by Scarecrows!   Yep you read that right…scarecrows invaded Hampstead!   You may be aware that Chester NH has been doing a fundraiser for years that involve towns folks buying a starter kit, blank head and body frame, with proceeds to benefit the Historical Society. The Chester Scarecrow event has been popular for years and something that Jay and I have enjoyed seeing, taking pictures and videos of the scarecrows.   This year I mused , after seeing some crows in Sandown and  a few in Hampstead that maybe the Chester Scarecrow event would morph into some sort of tri-town event.  Well I am not that far off.  Within the last week or so Scarecrows have shown up all over Hampstead!Hampstead Scarecrows 2015

The Hampstead NH Scarecrows 2015 started very low key with proceeds going to a local food pantry.  My understanding is that quickly 100 heads, blank heads to be decorated, were sold ($10.00 each)  with many more folks wanting to join in but no more heads to be had.  Jay and I drove through town the other day and were able to take some pictures and videos of the Hampstead NH Scarecrows 2015.

Next year, I am sure, this will be a much larger event and that means folks can drive all around Hampstead, enjoy breakfast or lunch and then explore Chester and then have dinner at a local restaurant before returning home.  Maybe Sandown will jump on the scarecrow wagon too and it will really end up being a month long tri town event next year.

Lobster Q Seafood & BBQ Hampstead NH

Lobster Q on the Food Network’s Rewrapped show!

NH has sure been on the map lately and I am so happy that one of our all time favorite places to dine, which is right in Hampstead New Hampshire,  the Lobster Q’s Seafood and BBQ proprietor Sean Hopkins is going to be on the Premier Episode of #Rewrapped on the FoodNetwork, this Monday at 8pm.   How very cool and how very exciting. I remember when Sean opened the Lobster Q Seafood and Barbecue restaurant, I remember when he had no idea how to use social media, make videos but his personality and eagerness to learn and explore this way of connecting with folks really made people sit up and take notice.  

Lobster Q

New Years Eve at the Lobster Q

Jay and I loved the restaurant from our first visit and we enjoyed Sean’s outgoing personality, he made us feel at home, made us feel special and made us want to keep going back for more… and we did.  The last few years we’ve spent New Year’s Eve and other special family events at the Lobster Q and each time the visit was perfect!

 

Goldfish and Lobster really

The episode has something to do with Goldfish and Lobster and knowing Sean I’m thinking some sort of creative stuffing? Really I am clueless but I will be watching the show to find out!  Monday, April 21st at 8pm on the Food Network.

 

Congratulations Sean and Danielle all your hard work has really paid off!  Next up… you’ll need a bigger place and a bigger bar to house all your devoted patrons.  Jay and I are very happy for you!

This is a video review of the Lobster Q when it opened in Hampstead NH
